The Temo poll for Dagens Nyheter and Sydsvenskan also shows that the centre-right Alliance has pulled ahead while voter support for the Social Democrats has fallen.
The four parties in the liberal-conservative alliance were supported by 50.9 percent of those questioned, while 42.6 percent said they would vote for the Social Democrats, Greens or Left Party. This gives the Alliance a lead of 8.3 percentage points.
The June List had the support 4.5 percent of voters according to Temo, which interviewed 2,489 people from 11th - 29th October.
Other parties together had support from only 1.5 percent of voters. Among these were the Feminist Initiative, the far-right Sweden Democrats and the Healthcare Party, all with very low support.
Sweden is due to go to the polls next September.
